      JMAC • Lighting Ceremony & Official Unveiling

      Join the City of Worcester for the official unveiling of the Jean McDonough Arts Center! On March 5th, 2020 at 4:30pm, there will be a lighting ceremony at the northwest corner of 20 Franklin Street celebrating the new Jean McDonough Arts Center (JMAC). Come visit the familiar Worcester PopUp and discover the new BrickBox Theater.
      In fall 2019, Worcester-based philanthropist Jean McDonough gifted $2 million to support completion of the BrickBox Theater, set to open in the summer of 2020, and to subsidize operations of the venue’s first years. In addition to Mrs. McDonough, the JMAC’s key funders and partners include: the Barr Foundation; the City of Worcester; the Worcester Business Development Corporation; and The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts, which operates the BrickBox in partnership with the Worcester Cultural Coalition, and will manage the theater’s day-to-day functions, including but not limited to box office and front-of-house
      The event is free and open to all. It will include remarks from City Manager Edward M. Augustus, Jr., entertainment from the Joy of Music Program, sweet treats from the Canal District’s Queen’s Cups, and a champagne toast.

      Cost: Free -
